On June 15, from 9 AM to 5 PM, the TEDx Flour City Talks will be held at Kilbourn Hall at the Eastman School of Music located at 26 Gibbs St.
At this year’s event, RCTV’s General Manager, filmmaker Carvin Eison will be one of the presenters. The theme will be Listen Closer.
The TEDx Talks were started almost 30 years ago in California, to share “Ideas Worth Spreading.” Although the TEDx talks are now licensed across the U.S. the goal for each TEDx is to select the most vibrant ideas from among those who submit concepts to present.

• Reenah Golden, spoken word artist.
• Carvin Eison, film director.
• Andrea Holland, CEO Holland Communications.
